Protein

So I share horses with my grandma and she just figured out we were giving them WAY to much protein and that's why they're always excited. Does anyone know how long it takes for the protein to leave their system?

Make sure you provide them with clean, fresh water regularly; they should just pee it out (their kidneys sort out the excess protein and it comes out in urine). I don't know how long it'll take, I suppose the longer they've had excess protein in their system, the longer it'll take, but that's just an assumption, and not a fact.
